      The Vancouver park board has selected four new artist groups to take part in its citywide studio-residency program.

      The latest additions are the Loco Moto Art Collective, the Sassafras Project, the Re-Invent Project, and the Bird Project, the park board announced in a news release today (July 4).

      Under the program, artists are granted free use of temporary studio space in field houses and other facilities in exchange for offering arts programming to the community.

      The park board says the latest artist groups will lead a range of activities such as film screenings, talks, art projects, and workshops.

      The Loco Moto Art Collective and the Sassafras Project have both been provided with space at West Point Grey Community Centre.

      Meanwhile, the Re-Invent Project and the Bird Project have been provided with space at Moberly Park and Queen Elizabeth Park, respectively.

      The studio-residency program runs until January 2015.
